Reactions – Artists’ Responses to Conflict

At IWM North, we've been commissioning high-quality artworks, events, workshops and live performances from contemporary artists for our Reactions series since 2010.
The Reactions programme encourages artistic responses to the themes, architecture and collections of the museum that will unveil new and unique ways to explore the impact of conflict on everyone involved.
Find out about the pieces currently on display at IWM North below.
